If you like fish and seafood more than meat, then buzio is definitely a dish to try in Cape Verde.
Morreia (fried moray eel) is one of those dishes that stand as proof of the strong Portuguese influences the Cape Verdean culture had over the decades.
Food in Cape Verde is often based on so-called “poor” ingredients, but this doesn’t mean it’s not tasty.
One thing you’ll find out quickly when visiting Cape Verde is that there are so many fish or seafood Cape Verdean recipes that you’ll be spoiled with choices when ordering your lunch or dinner.
There is nothing quite like enjoying a nice spicy chicken after soaking up the sun for the whole day.
While its name might remind of the Maghrebi couscous, the Cape Verdean bol of cus-cus is an entirely different dish. It’s usually served for breakfast and ideal for anyone with a sweet tooth.
